Charities sometimes use the results from our work to support campaigns or fundraising. They also use our recommendations to develop and improve their services for greater impact.

If the results show that their interventions are not effective, or not cost effective, and there is no reason to think that better data might give a different picture, we would expect the charity and its board to consider why this might be the case and use this information to help think about how they might make changes.

Where our work centres on advice around data collection, we hope that the charity implements our recommendations, collects useful data and comes back to us for analysis, once sufficient data has been collected.

We undertake reviews with each charity one year after our work project is completed. This is important, as it allows us to demonstrate our own impact. We aim to share the results of our work on an open source basis.  We also share our findings by holding discussion events for relevant stakeholders.
